PIPELINE: Derrick Adams for NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem

RxART is proud to be working with Derrick Adams on a project for the Pediatric Emergency Department at NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem. Derrick Adams will create a detailed design to be translated into wall coverings for six treatment rooms in the Pediatric Emergency Department. Adams’ bright and playful artwork will transform the treatment rooms into an engaging environment for children and their families, allowing the patients to focus on the details of the artwork while receiving treatment.

The Department of Pediatric Emergency Medicine at NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem provides emergency care for ill and injured infants, children and adolescents, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In 2018, the Department served 18,000 pediatric patients. Most patients are directed to one of the six treatment rooms for examinations, various treatments and procedures.

RxART produces every project at no cost to the hospital. For more information on this project and how to support it, please contact Megan Skidmore, Director of Development at megan_skidmore@rxart.net, 212-260-8797.
